Welcome to Edgerton!
Surrounded by gently rolling hills close to the Saskatchewan
border in east-central Alberta
lies a small village called Edgerton. At the beginning of the 20th century, settlers
moved to the area with the construction of railway tracks in 1908 and two years
later the first school was built, followed by a church. The area's fertile land
was ideal for farming and continues to sustain Edgerton's thriving agricultural-based
economy as well as the village's beautiful, blooming gardens and green, leafy
parks. Summer is the best time for visitors to discover all that Edgerton has
to offer. The Edgerton
hosts the annual Antique
and the village positively buzzes during the Edgerton
Sports Days and Agricultural Bench Show
. Residents and visitors alike enjoy
taking a swing in the sun at the Edgerton
or at the nearby Arm
Lake Recreation Area
, which is also popular for fishing, swimming and camping.
During winter, most of the community can be found at the curling
enjoying heated competition at regular tournaments and bonspiels.
